    Recap of expanded Community Giveback Week

    Posted by Nordic on May 24, 2017 9:53:34 AM

    "To do more for the world than the world does for you – that is success," Henry Ford once said.

    We strive to embody that idea every day by helping our client partners improve their organizations and their patients' experiences. We also strive to give back to the communities that have contributed to our success. That sentiment could be found at the heart of Nordic's fifth annual Community Giveback Week, which took place last week. Highlighting the week were events across our hometown of Madison and six more regional sites across the country, three more than 2016.

    With the amount of good fortune we’ve experienced at Nordic over the past seven years, we recognize the importance of giving back and investing in the future of the communities in which we live and work. With that in mind, Winnie Karanja, founder and executive director of Maydm, was a great choice to address the home office in Madison and kick off Nordic’s fifth annual Community Giveback Week.

    [International Women’s Day] Four things everyone can do to #BeBoldForChange

    Posted by Samantha Tiller-Schenck on Mar 8, 2017 7:21:32 AM

    If you have the chance to walk around Nordic’s home office in Madison and stumble upon our marketing team, you’ll notice an “Everyday’s a Holiday” calendar hanging on our wall. Most mornings, the team gathers around the calendar to see what we plan to celebrate. When looking ahead to March, I noticed that “International Women’s Day” (IWD) wasn’t listed. I channeled my inner Sheryl Sandberg, asked why “Proof Reading Day” took precedence, and sought to understand more about IWD.  

    Tackling women’s issues is a big job. So, IWD recommends that we (men and women alike) focus on gender parity within our own spheres of influence. This year’s campaign, #BeBoldForChange, encourages us to find ways to cultivate an inclusive environment, challenge bias, promote gender-balanced leadership, and value the contributions of men and women equally in our day-to-day lives. (Photo below: Just some of our amazing Nordic women.)

    As women in a male-dominated field, there are small and large actions that will create an impact on our company’s cultures, our professional development, and personal growth:

    Posted by Bruce Cerullo on Feb 7, 2017 2:11:56 PM



    Three years back, if you had asked the team what Nordic does, most would have said we’re the largest Epic consulting firm on the planet or that we have “the best depth, breadth, and quality in the industry.” Our client partners knew that if they had a talent need, we were the go-to source.

    A little bit about Nordic's take on corporate social responsibility

    Posted by Nordic on Nov 16, 2016 11:35:11 AM

    At Nordic, we place a high value on supporting the communities in which we live and work through volunteerism and charitable giving. Over the past year, we’ve developed a corporate social responsibility committee with the goal of responsible and charitable giving under the focus of preventative health to include the following pillars: hunger, education, and empowerment. In the true spirit of our maxim “Grow. Teach,” we recently hosted a number of events in the home office to raise awareness about Nordic’s culture of philanthropy.

    Posted by Nordic on Jul 12, 2016 1:25:01 PM

    We’ve all been there. You have a complicated, time sensitive project. Even with your experience, you've never run into this particular problem. The answer isn’t readily available, and you’re not sure where to find the information you need. After listening to clients share their EHR growing pains, Nordic implemented Insight, a collective knowledge management tool for our employees to ask questions and share answers through a secure digital platform. Questions range from “What is a good brand of wall mount arm for computers in exam rooms?” to “What’s the average Beaker install time for an experienced Epic enterprise customer?”
